Hello Dear Reader,
When people know you are a thrifty sewer, they will often offer you fabric they have come by or they have no use for. I have been given a sample book of fabric; of Nina Campbell upholstery and curtain fabric. It will make great bags and cushions. It is 100% linen and made in the UK.
I have the entire sample book and I'm going to use it to make cushions. You'll have to watch this space as to what I do with the cushions. Next year you will be able to follow my extremely and deeply frugal home make over. That's a home make over when you haven't got any money. You know how it goes.
|The fabric samples|
Here's what the fabric looks like when it had been cut from the sample book and the labels removed from the back. The steam iron and patience got those off. Should you wish to buy any of Nina Campbell's fabrics, then you'll need to start at £55 a metre! I bought the cushion pads for £1.25, so that is exactly what each cushion will cost me! The fabrics all have a faded but elegant shabby chic look about them and they are going to be a welcome addition to one of the rooms I will refurbish.
If I were selling these, they would be part of my frugally luxurious range!
